Hairline lowering VS hair transplant? (Photo)

1cm, 2cm, 3cm?
You can do 1 to 2 cm with a hair transplant surgery.
Anything greater than 2cm you likely need forehead reduction surgery.
You can also combine the two surgeries to achieve the benefits that each surgery can provide.
The best doctors who perform forehead reduction surgery are Dr. Gal Aharonov and Dr. Sheldon Kabaker in my opinion.
NOTE: Forehead reduction surgery will cause a faint scar and sometime you may need hair grafting to disguise the car. Forehead reduction surgery also cannot round out the front corners like a hair transplant surgery. Hair transplant surgery however will never give you the full density and immediate gratification of a forehead reduction surgery.

The advantages of the surgical lowering procedure (like a brow lift in reverse) is that the results are basically instantaneous, a week or two after healing is complete. The hair was there prior to the surgery (but after the surgery just a few centimeters lower), so you do not have to wait for the hair to grow out like with a hair transplant. If you need more than one inch lowering, then the transplant option may be better. Some people with the hairline lowering procedure will develop a scar at the hairline and may require transplants to hide it.
The hair transplant hairline lowering procedure is demonstrated in four women below in the web reference. The results are every bit as good and there is no scar in front. This technique requires 6-8 months for the hair to grow, so it takes longer. If you hair is very fine, however, the surgical approach is better because more hair is moved than with the hair transplant approach and people with fine hair need more hair.
